  1. I am running latest version of El Capitan on mu Mac Book Pro – My contacts do not appear on my Face Time screen – how can I get them to show so I can use my Mac to make and receive Face Time calls?
    My iPhone 5 works really well but it would be good to use the Mac so the images are a lot bigger.
    Thanks
